Classic Car Overview

This 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner is a beautifully restored retractable in a fantastic 50s color scheme with great options! 1958 proved to be a down year for the American automakers due to an economic recession at the time that caused car sales to take a bit of a dip. Nonetheless, companies such as the Ford Motor Company re-vamped the styling on its 1958 passenger car line and FoMoCo introduced these cars to the public on November 7, 1957. At the nose, Ford completely redesigned the front ends including a new hood, complete with a faux scoop, along with new honeycomb-style grilles and bumpers that received a more futuristic design. New Safety-Twin headlights were also incorporated into the front fenders in 1958, the first time automakers were permitted to have dual headlights on their cars and trucks. Down the side, the gold beltline anodized trim was also enlarged from the previous year models and increased the distinction of the 1958 Ford models. At the rear, the taillights were also revamped moving away from the single circle design to a matching dual oval design that straddled a rectangular backup light, all of which was surrounded in chrome trim. Sitting atop Fords passenger car line was the Fairlane 500 series and the top-level Fairlane 500 was the Skyliner Retractable that featured the iconic Hide-Away hardtop which made its initial debut in 1957. Interestingly the Retractable Hide-Away hardtop had actually been in the works at Ford for several years with the initial thought being that the retracting hardtop would be incorporated into Continentals Mark II. As the story goes, the unique retracting hardtop design was scrapped in the mid-50s on the Continental Mark II but was later repurposed to be used in the Fairlane line under the name, the Skyliner. What makes the retractable hardtop so unique is that lifts off the car with the push of a button and is stowed away in a rear compartment that is completely flush with the body of the car while utilizing a complex mechanical system made up of 10 solenoids, 7 high torque motors, 610 feet of wire, and numerous switches and relays. At the time, the second most expensive Ford model in 1958 was the Skyliner (behind the Thunderbird) so with the lackluster economic conditions in 1958, only 14,713 units were produced. Powering this 1958 Skyliner is a 332 Cubic Inch V8 engine paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor that was said to have created 265 horsepower. The 332 V8 is backed by a Cruise-O-Matic Automatic transmission that ensures that just about anyone can take this Retractable for a spin around the block. This 1958 Ford Skyliner is loaded with options! With power brakes, bringing this 58 Ford Fairlane to a stop is made much easier. Power steering makes maneuvering this 1958 Fairlane 500 Skyliner in and out of tight spaces at a car show or the local drive-in is a total breeze and improves the overall driving experience. This 1958 Ford Retractable is also equipped with dealer add-on air conditioning so that you can stay cool even on the hottest summer days. The Hide-Away Hardtop on this 58 Ford works great and goes up and down with the simple pull or push of a switch under the dash. Riding on a set of wide whitewall tires paired with full Turbine-style wheelcovers, this 1958 Skyliner has a truly classic look. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this fifties Ford is in wonderful condition as well. The exterior on this 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 has been correctly refinished in a beautiful two-tone paint scheme consisting of Gulfstream Blue and Colonial White which completes the exterior look of the car. The interior on this 1958 Ford Retractable Hardtop is absolutely stunning! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered correctly in a beautiful two-tone color scheme made up of Colonial White Vinyl with Blue Gulfstream Royal Scot Tweed inserts. The Gulfstream Blue painted dash, two-tone upholstered door panels, steering wheel, and blue carpeting are all in fantastic shape and appear to be in their stock configuration. The dash is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, and fuel gauge, along with a Town and Country AM radio and clock. A dealer installed Ford-branded air conditioning unit is mounted neatly under the dash as well. Whether youre buying your first classic car or youre adding to your existing Skyliner collection, this 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Skyliner would make an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
